New Noise Magazine is pleased to bring forth “Hush” by Treadles. The song is streaming below, and starts from a few simple notes and continues to expand on the motif until a shift is felt. The steady brilliance of the track flips from a controlled explosion to a rather tectonic finale. From synthesizers to bombastic drums, gnashing guitars and a racket of vocals, “Hush” has everything one needs in a raw, crushing song. Treadles are not scared to go anywhere, and that is evident with this creative, inspiring track. “Hush” is off of the band’s upcoming release, Bees Are Thieves Too, out October 20th via Community Records.
“‘Hush’ is a pretty old song that’s been reworked a few times now. For the latest re-do I had the thought that new Treadles would probably be pegged as some kind of emo band no matter what I did, so I wanted to go all out and embrace that for at least one track. Plus, Rustle is real good at that screech; might as well use it.
Thematically, ‘Hush’ deals with the dissolution of a close friendship and realizing sometimes it’s better to just not. It starts as a declaration of support, morphs into a rebuke and ends up an admittance that sometimes love just isn’t enough.” – K.C. Stafford
